After installing a GPU driver I get a black screen when the OS is initialized and it needs me to log on. I can see the post messages and BIOS fine. I have installed all the driver versions from AMD including the beta (all clean installs). When I can get something other than a black screen there are lines and flashes all over the window. When i go to log in the screen goes what ever color is most dominant on the monitor. I have tried moving the card into a different slot and I get the same issue. The only thing I can't do is test the card in another rig because I do not have one. The only reason do not think the card is bad is because it works when there is no driver. Also I am not running any overclocks the system is vanilla. My system info is below.

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
3.80 gigahertz AMD FX-4300 Quad-Core
Crucial M4 256GB SATA SSD
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z

what was your old graphics card? was it another amd GPU card?

if so then you need to download AMD software remover version 1.0 or 1.2. it was made by amd but is not available from amds site anymore but is offered on a lot of sites still. it will remove all amd software and reg settings which will allow you to do a true clean amd install. this program I have saved because every time I update amds driver I seem to have to run it or I run into issues.

I have never had a different card. Before in my intial post I stated that all driver installs were done clean using the sweeper software from AMD. It cannot be a driver conflict. I know this because auto updates through windows are disabled, and the OS is completely updated.
